M. A. Mansur, Kiang-Hwee Tan
January 29, 1999

This book compiles state-of-the-art information on the behavior, analysis, and design of concrete beams containing transverse openings.Discussions includethe need, effects, and classification of openings as well as the general requirements for fulfilling designpure bending, combined bending, and...

Theory of Adaptive Structures: Incorporating Intelligence into Engineered Products

Theory of Adaptive Structures: Incorporating Intelligence into Engineered Products

1st Edition

Senol Utku
February 18, 1998

Theory of Adaptive Structures provides the basic theory for controlling adaptive structures in static and dynamic environments. It synthesizes well-established theories on modern control as well as statics and dynamics of deformable bodies. Discussions concentrate on the discrete parameter adaptive...

Fracture and Size Effect in Concrete and Other Quasibrittle Materials

Fracture and Size Effect in Concrete and Other Quasibrittle Materials

1st Edition

Zdenek P. Bazant, Jaime Planas
December 29, 1997

Fracture and Size Effect in Concrete and Other Quasibrittle Materials is the first in-depth text on the application of fracture mechanics to the analysis of failure in concrete structures. The book synthesizes a vast number of recent research results in the literature to provide a comprehensive...

The Finite Strip Method

The Finite Strip Method

1st Edition

Y. K. Cheung, L. G. Tham
December 29, 1997

The increase in the popularity and the number of potential applications of the finite strip method has created a demand for a definitive text/reference on the subject. Fulfilling this demand, The Finite Strip Method provides practicing engineers, researchers, and students with a comprehensive...

Cold Weather Concreting

Cold Weather Concreting

1st Edition

B.A. Krylov
November 19, 1997

Concreting in cold weather requires special knowledge and skills to ensure accelerated hardening and high quality in plain- and reinforced-concrete structures. Cold Weather Concreting familiarizes concrete specialists with the characteristic features of concrete in cold weather, including the...

LRFD Steel Design Using Advanced Analysis

LRFD Steel Design Using Advanced Analysis

1st Edition

W.F. Chen, Seung-Eock Kim
January 30, 1997

LRFD Steel Design Using Advanced Analysis uses practical advanced analysis to produce almost identical member sizes to those of the Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) method. The main advantage of the advanced analysis method is that tedious and sometimes confusing separate member capacity...

Fracture Processes of Concrete

Fracture Processes of Concrete

1st Edition

Jan G.M. van Mier
December 20, 1996

Despite tremendous advances made in fracture mechanics of concrete in recent years, very little information has been available on the nature of fracture processes and on reliable test methods for determining parameters for the different models. Moreover, most texts on this topic discuss numerical...
